Lebanese Couscous originated in North Africa and was once considered a delicacy, but now is very common and is available throughout the world. Lebanese Couscous is different than traditional couscous because it is larger, about the size of a pea when compared to traditional couscous that is the size of a peppercorn. It is made by forming pasta-like wheat dough into pea-sized balls. Lebanese Couscous, also known as “pearl couscous” is actually a type of semolina pasta, has a smoother, chewier and sturdier consistency, and can be used in recipes calling for rice, pasta, orzo , or other whole grain.
